When are Black Friday 2016 and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday 2016 falls on the 25 November, with Cyber Monday on 28 November 2016.
During 2014’s Black Friday extravaganza, Walmart-owned Asda moved 8,000 TV’s before breakfast and made 130 sales every second throughout the day whilst Game were selling Xbox One and PS4 consoles at a rate of 3,600 per hour. At its peak on Black Friday 2015, Currys was shifting 30 TVs per minute!
Why does Black Friday happen?
Without the US Thanksgiving holiday there would be no Black Friday and certainly no Cyber Monday. Black Friday is now a big thing in the UK (especially online) but it was originally the annual US shopping extravaganza the day after Thanksgiving. Cyber Monday came about as it was traditionally the biggest day for online sales (as it's after everybody gets paid). It's a bit like Boxing Day sales in the UK.
Now the whole thing has smashed together to make a whole weekend of bargains, while some retailers like Amazon publish early deals, too (we'll have them all here).
With retailers slashing their prices for one day only just before Christmas its no surprise that masses of people head down to the shops to grab a bargain. We advise that you stay at home and grab exactly the same deals online instead without the stresses of battling with hoards of people.
